In a former life (living in Holland in a freshly build house) I had a country style interior. All naturals and white. Solid furniture with a romantic touch. Oooh how I loved that house and that style.......
Now we actually live in the country (mountainviews, olive trees, goats and sheep passing by) in an old country house and our style is like an outburst of colours! Not strange at all come to think about it, Andalucia has major Moorisch/Maroccian influences. And I love this house and style too!
But when I found a French cross stitch magazine in the store, full of lovely French vintage country style projects....(picture red hearts on natural coloured linen...) I couldn't help myself, but buy it. I haven't done a single cross stitch for quite some years now, but I think I will pick up a needle very soon. In the meanwhile it did inspire me to crochet some things in that style:A soapbag (filled with Marseille soap, mmmm that smell!) and a washcloth , both my own dessigns. There is definately more to follow in this style...
And I was honered with an award by both Maartje and Marjo, THANK YOU big time ladies! Sorry I didn't post it sooner, but sometimes I'm just not connected to the rest of the world, because of a lack of internet connection (comes with actual country living in Spain....).
I'm supposted to give the award to new bloggers or bloggers that haven't got much followers yet so I would like to introduce Erica's and Astrid's blogs to you. Both really creative
(and sweet!) friends of mine, but not yet well known in blogland, which is really a shame because they both make such wonderful creations.
Enjoy your day....I know I will....the sun is out (it's almost too warm to actually sit in the sun) and the birds are making so much 'noise' in the garden, shouting out that spring is here!
